Re: Disappearing cycle lanes on North Road

I know they were narrow and got bumpier by the month as HCC did not repair them but isn't having no bike lanes at all on the road to/ from Hertford North even worse? Frankly, no. Indicative cycle lanes are completely pointless and offer no additional protection to cyclists whatsoever. They're just ...

Re: Maidenhead Street

Taking account of the HUDS statement "As part of these works, new gates will be installed at either end of Maidenhead Street." I can't help but wonder where these gates are? Overall, I personally feel Bull Plain is much improved, though still a work in progress, but am confused as to where blue bad...

Re: Vehicle crime

I hope everyone is reporting these.

The local crime stats show vehicle crime running at 20-30 reports a month.

Lamentable choice. The big 2 or an Independent at local level. Big 2, Quislings or Greens at County.
You're a couple of years late for the County elections (or early depending on the viewpoint).

This year's elections are for the town and district councils.

Re: Is anything happening?

We've got local elections in under a week's time. And EU elections in under 4 weeks. Is anything happening in Hertford? I understand the local Tories are running a stall at today's market.

Ah, Birchall Garden Suburb - 2550 homes south east of WGC (link: http://www.tarmac.com/birchall-garden-suburb). Not exactly between Hertford and WGC to my mind, but that's probably ...
